Love Is Never Lost

March 27, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Last used March 22/16

Love is never lost
Only left behind or put in a place
Where it can’t grow.

Sow love seeds so dear
Nurture, care
Watch love grow.

No needy nor neglect
Let love grow in your heart
Don’t let it be, ever lost.

For this you’ll know
As you watch it grow
Love can never, ever be lost.

The Sun

March 26, 2020

Spring Shoots ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun breaks
over a brown earth
Left as if dead from winter storms
But then
In the midst of all broke
Deemed dead and dying
Is a small green shoot
Emerging
Bringing life
To a winter weary land.

The warm sun gives life
Nurtures
The rising ones
Spring
Has come
As winter retreats
Only
On a later day
To blast
Blow once again.

The sun then rests
Satisfied
she has done her best
Thou
She too
Will be back
Tomorrow
To nurture, bring life
With a warm, radiating
Spring sun.

Terror Holds My Heart

March 25, 2020

Terror
holds my heart
Still waiting
for the worst
To subside.

And my mind
Knows
The world
Of innocence
Will not grow
It’ll hide.

Only fear
Anger
Uncontrolled
Hate
Coupled with
Mistrust
If
we’re not careful
These
Will dominate.

My terror shows
I can not hide
These feelings
I feel
I describe.

Knowing All

Knowing all
Does not help
To know
The best.

Knowing less
Leaves you open
To seek, question
All the rest.

Some Days

Some days are not OK days.

Some days
Carry the burden
Of yesterday.

Some days
Your heart weeps
Your lips pale.

Some days
It’s best to think of
Another day.

Some days

Now

Wandering now
Where I’ve never been

Seeking now
Things I’ve won’t begin

Leaving now
Thoughts I shouldn’t have held so tight

Gone now
From the darkest night

Flowing now
On a path not so straight

Holding now
Promise as I go to the light.

Heard The Answer

March 19, 2020

Rock in Awe~ Photo by Patrice

Heard the answer
Before the question
Was ever asked.

Knew the answer
Didn’t have to ask
Or form the words
To know
I must be forever
Where the answer is
Not
The question asked.
